Director’s Blog – July 16, 2015

Last night

It is so hard to believe that the first four weeks of camp have come to an end. It seems like yesterday that it was the first day of camp and the CITs were singing to all of the campers in the Dining Hall:

 

 

We welcome you to Camp Louise

We’re mighty glad you’re here

We’ll send the air reverberating with a mighty cheer

We’ll sing you in, we’ll sing you out

To you, we’ll raise a mighty shout

Hail, hail, the gang’s all here and you’re welcome to Camp Louise!

 

Fast forward to tonight. Picture this – the whole camp gathered in Solarium after Dance Concert under a dark sky. The CAs performed what has come to be known as our Separation Ceremony (think Havdallah-like). They shared quotes and a song and there were lots and lots of teary, teary campers (and some staff, too). We then talked about the Middah of the Week (gratitude) and how grateful we are to have such a special place to say good-bye to. As we watched our final slide show, there were cheers, as well as tears – and we sang our final Goodnight Song:

 

Another day has come to an end

I cherish every hour we spend

And I’m so glad you’re with me, my friend

At Airy and Louise

 

Tomorrow we will rise with the sun

Another day of camp’s big fun

We’ll make new memories one by one

At Airy and Louise

 

Goodnight, goodnight, it’s time to say

Lilah Tov, it’s the end of the day

Safe and warm in Sukkat Shalom

At peace in our summer home

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone back in 2016!
